Russ Locandro

44th Bomb Squadron

Radar bombardier


Target: Kure


July 1, 1945


Lt. Buechler and crew #22 “Nippon Nipper III”


Lt. Buechler and crew did a fine job on this night mission, which we had 10/10 undercast, moderate flak and bombs going right in the target area. Yes-that’s right, another good bombing mission for the record.
